About this event

To recognize the release of Bigby Presents: Glory of the Giants, revisit an adventure from Tales from the Yawning Portal, "Against the Giants" using the new lore and stat blocks that Bigby managed to dig up. Against the Giants is a sprawling dungeon crawl that encourages exploration, smart encounter management, and teamwork. The adjustments I’m making should make it fresh even for those who have played it before.

As a DM, my goal is for everyone to have fun, and I have fun when the players get to feel like Heroes of The Realms! I prepare adventures the way I would want to play them, then let player preferences and engagement adapt the experience - key NPCs may play bigger roles, combat may take focus or be easier, puzzles and problem solving may be head scratchers or heavily clued. My virtual tabletop experience includes using artwork, music, and voices to set the stage for you to take the lead roles.

This adventure requires a tier 3 (level 11-16) Adventurers League character from the Forgotten Realms campaign to play. The full experience of this adventure is expected to last for eight sessions on a weekly basis, with a session zero before we start. This session will be to set expectations, get to know each other and your characters, and cover content advisories and safety tools.


Welcome and we hope you enjoy some of our Home Game in the Cloud sessions! We know that sometimes cramming multiple games into a single weekend each month isn't the right choice for every group and every adventure. In order to facilitate more games every month, we're adding some different ways of setting up longer-form adventuring.

For this adventure, you will be purchasing individual game sessions every week for nine total sessions (with some potential breaks where other events interfere with the schedule). Games will be on Tuesday at 8pm EDT. Each game will cost $25 per player, paid in advance of the start time. For the following session, you'll receive a 72-hour advance window in which to purchase the next game before we open those seats up to the public.

When paying for your first game, please make sure to include your discord username in the pre-order form. Games will be organized on the Baldman Games Community Server on discord, so please make sure to join us there and reach out using the #i-need-help channel where one of our admins can grant you a special role that will give you access to your game channel.
